Donovan remains quiet about Kentucky opening


• HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - Speaking before a fundraising dinner at Marshall University on Wednesday night, Florida coach Billy Donovan said he needs time to "decompress" following the Gators' second straight national championship, though he endorsed current Florida assistant Donnie Jones for the head coaching job at Marshall.


Donovan remains uncertain about his future. He said he hasn't been contacted about the Kentucky job since leaving the Georgia Dome after Florida beat Ohio State on Monday.


"If I was contacted by them, that would be something that I would have to think about," Donovan said.
